Clinton-Dix (6-1, 208) was originally a first-round pick (No. 21 overall) of the Packers in the 2014 NFL Draft out of the University of Alabama.
The Redskins safety checked his phone Tuesday afternoon and saw Clinton-Dix texted him, 'Coming at you, bro.' He initially ignored the message, assuming his fellow safety had been referencing their interception totals.
Montgomery said on the radio Monday that he and his family received death threats following the loss. I love the way he plays the game. "But I was excited to come". There's a lot I can learn from.
Trading him wasn't an easy decision with what he has meant to the franchise. In the past year of his rookie deal, Green Bay has a history of not retaining notable defensive players. Although Clinton-Dix wasn't a superstar for the Packers defense, his presence will surely be missed as a playmaker and reliable stalwart.
The acquisition of Montgomery for a 2020 seventh-round draft pick was made to augment a rushing attack that ranks 24th in the National Football League in yards per game (96.6) and 31st in yards per carry (3.6).
It is a chance. They also have multiple players in their secondary - both safeties and cornerbacks - that could function at different positions. He was named to the Pro Bowl and earned second-team All-Pro honors in 2016.
Clinton-Dix and Swearinger are each versatile, a trait that's helpful in the modern NFL. They just need to work on his listening skills.
Coach Jay Gruden doesn't see a problem.
The 4-4 Ravens are heading into a rematch with the 4-2-1 Pittsburgh Steelers at home as it is considered a must-win game in week eight heading into the bye week, and he could help the Ravens push for a playoff spot in November and December.
Good luck and thank you, Ty Montgomery! I don't know if this is going to land on the goal line.
